The Hijacked American Dream

BY JOEL LARSGAARD
@ VOL 20 ON OCT 04, 2013

The American Dream is not what it used to be. It has been hijacked. Joel Larsgaard talks about the three keys to taking it back. They are:

  • Get rid of the things you don't use
  • Make your future purchases thoughtfully
  • Use a hotel room as a model for your life

The best things in life are experiences. Consume less and make better choices.

"Presentation of the Day" on December 17, 2013.
